ASHOVER
SK36SE OAKSTEDGE LANE
1264-0/8/70 (North side)
31/01/67 Raven House
II
Farmhouse. Late C17 rebuild of earlier C17 house, and with C19
and C20 alterations. Coursed squared gritstone with ashlar
dressings, quoins, coped gables with moulded kneelers, central
ridge stack, one gable stack, and a concrete tiled roof.
Central lobby-entrance plan, with double gabled rear ranges,
one a staircase wing. South elevation of-2 storeys and attics,
3 bays, with gables to the outer bays. Central doorway with
quoined surround and massive lintel below a drip mould. Plain
plank door. Flanking the doorway are stacked 2-light chamfered
mullioned windows, those to the attics within the gable
apexes. All windows with drip moulds. Above attic windows,
small oeil-de-bouef windows beneath drip moulds. Ball finials
to the base of each gable slope, mounted on tapered finials.
West elevation with stacked 2-light chamfered mullioned
windows to gable of front range, and two C20 2-light glazing
bar casements in the west sidewall of the western rear wing.
This has an altered C17 doorway, retaining some parts of a
quoined surround, and now with a C20 planked door. There is
also a small C17 opening, possibly a fire window, now blocked,
above which is a blocked inserted first floor doorway. Running
above the fire window, and the inserted C20 casement, is a
roughly dressed-back string course, formerly a C17 moulding
covering doorway and window openings. The western rear wing
continues at a reduced height, the result of C19 and C20
alterations, and retains a C17 two-light chamfered mullioned
window between an undamaged portion of the C17 string course.
The double-gabled rear elevation has staggered windows to
light the stairs at landing and half-landing levels, and an
attic light, 5 in total, each 2-light chamfered mullioned
openings beneath drip moulds. The gable to the western range
has only 2 blocked single-light attic windows, and the roof
line of a lower continuation, below which the walling is
rubble work.
INTERIOR: exposed ceiling timbers to ground floor rooms.
Remains of a moulded plaster cornice to the eastern parlour,
and stone hearths to both ground floor rooms, the hall or
house part with a recently added C17 timber overmantel with
elaborate ornamentation. The house has a fine splat baluster
staircase.
